Thanks for the info. One other question - when I write only mmiotrace to
the current_tracer, the trace_printk() stuff does not end up in the
buffer. I can get it by using the "sysprof" tracer, but that has a lot
of stuff I do not want. Did I miss some configuration? My list of
available tracers is "blk kmemtrace mmiotrace wakeup_rt wakeup function
sysprof sched_switch nop".

Thanks,

Larry
